Indian Way of Management
In the way you always wanted to learn

There is no word for "Blackmail" in any Indian Language.

India is not only the oldest civilisation but also the richest civilisation.

Last few centuries India lost it’s way but now it is again on the path to reclaim its glory.
C Rajagopalachari had written “India had probably the largest number and very big time lengths of intervals between one effective government and another. There have been a great many periods during which the people had neither central nor regional governments exercising effective authority. All these periods of what may be called a no-government condition could not possibly have been tided over but for the self-restraints imposed by our culture.”

India’s decline started from 18th Century – a relative short time in the Indian history – but from the beginning of Industrial Revolution. Not only India but the world has been left a poorer place from the time of Industrial Revolution. Poorer not only in terms of morality but also in terms of ecology, wealth and peace. Wealth is in the hand of too few and too many are dying every day for creating this wealth.

Time has come for the world to look at the Indian model of Business/Management because India is not only the longest but wealthiest civilisation also; not only in terms of material but also in terms of spiritual and cultural; scientific and industrial wealth.

Mr. Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India gave a lecture at ISB Hyderabad on 5th December, 2006, where he noted: “We probably do not have a critical mass of faculty, research and case studies to enable us to define what may be called an Indian approach to management. Management, like any discipline dealing with people, is more of an art than a science. There is quite understandably, a difference in approach to management philosophies and practices as developed in the US, Europe and Japan. Perhaps one can even talk of a Chinese model of management. Clearly there should be an Indian Model of management too. Even as we learn from the West and the East, we must try and evolve our own paradigm of management education based on our social and cultural attributes.” Read Article.

When I read this excerpt coming from an illustrious teacher of international repute, it set me thinking. How is it possible that one of the oldest civilizations with hoary tradition of gathering and dissemination of knowledge and well evolved skills of imparting education could lack in indigenous management thoughts?

Result of this restless churning of thoughts was the book “Business of Freedom – an initiative for School of Indian Management”.

I was asked by students, teachers, readers to write in more detail about Indian way of management. That resulted in the book “Indian Ocean Strategy – School of Indian Management in Practice”.

After the release of the book “Business of Freedom” in June 2008 I had several opportunities to speak on Indian Way of Management on various platforms. In 2011, I conducted a 15 hour lecture at Sir M. Visvesvaraya Institute of Management Studies And Research, Mumbai for the MBA students. Infact after 12 Hours of lecture, student of Class of 2011 -13, MMS 1st Year went on to publish an article “ A Call To Study Indian Management”. Then again in 2013 at Aruna Manharlal Shah Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai I conducted a 15 hour lecture for the MBA students.

In between I got an opportunity to address several management associations, clubs, corporate, public meetings also.

The end result was a substantial improvement in the content of lecture as well as the realization that there is a need and desire for Indian way of management among the Professors and students of management and the practitioners of management i.e. the corporate world. Based on this realization I designed three different courses, which are as follows:

  1. 15 hours course for MBA students, preferably from second year.
  2. 1.5 hour lecture for corporate world
  3. Customised, need and issue based, specific lecture for the corporate world

Indian Way Of Management will make you conscious of the fact that sensory perception can consciously influence buying behaviour.

Apart from this the lecture on “Managerial Learning from Freedom Fighters” is offered without any lecture fee i.e. it is free.
